Nuland-Pyatt Video Restored to YouTube

The video, with more than 181,000 views, in which top U.S. officials in 2014 discuss changing the Ukrainian government, had been removed from YouTube after more than 8 years.

A video of a leaked conversation between then Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the then U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, which had been removed from YouTube, has been restored.

In the video, the two discuss changing the Ukrainian government weeks before the democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych was violently driven from power.

The video, posted on April 29, 2014 had 181,533 views before it was taken down on Wednesday, was among the most viewed versions of the conversation on YouTube. Eight years worth of viewer comments on the video had also been removed.

    I stand corrected for having thought that the photography in the removed file included pictures of Nuland and John McCain with Nazi leaders, Tyahnybok especially. It doesn’t, and I shouldn’t have speculated.

    Joe Lauria emphasized that the removed file was the most often viewed and therefore possibly the most likely to be found in a search. It’s taken me a few days to understand the importance of that point. I apologize for missing it and for speculating.

    Joe Lauria and CN have made it possible for us to see this document again, which includes the violence of the Maidan coup. All my thanks and respect as always.

    Too late, Youtube admitted they are underhanded slimeballs for concealing the truth if even for a day.
    Even if it was an arrhythmia algorithm.

    Baker and Bush told the Big Lie to the Russians, the ‘not one step eastward’ Big Lie. Then, they were already stirring up trouble in eastern Europe about the promised land of NATO before Ross Perot forced them out of office. Then, under Clinton, the military got its way and the process of the many leaps and bounds eastward formally began. Both Dubya and Obama had their roles to play in this as well.

    And, BTW, it was Dubya, via Dick Cheney’s Office of the Veep that brought Vikky Nuland into power inside the gov. Then Obama, via Hillary’s Dept of State who kept her in power after the Dubya collapse.

    And its not like Trump completely cut off Ukraine from aid and he sure didn’t object to Steve Bannon’s friends in Warsaw and the Baltics and their antics either. Trump constantly told all of these countries to spend money on guns and not nurses, teachers or food.

    This has truly been a bi-partisan, colossal Bleep-Up, which will go down in history as an empire-ender. If there is anyone left to write a history, so perhaps it will be the oral history storytellers around the post apocalypse campfires telling how the Democrats and the Republicans worked together to destroy the world. If the names Democrats and Republicans are jointly hated and cursed for the next millennium, then perhaps a tiny bit of good can come of this.

    It seems to me that many who comment here don’t see the connections between the International Corporate Deep State, the Washington War machine and horrific world events. Reviewing historically significant events of the last 70 years many, of which, seem to be some of the most relevant in our entire history. We must put daddy Bush and his contributions to this history in perspective. Him and his henchman James A. Baker III, one who told the Ukranians one thing about NATO membership and the other stated the direct opposite, long before Barack Obama was on the scene. Back at a time when GHW, 41, took a leave from his side jobs as CIA influencer to Presidents and became POTUS himself and we know how that all worked out don’t we. Illegal drug trade by CIA, illegal weapons trade by CIA, Illegal banking practices to fund these illegal operations and Bill Barr handing our pardons like candy to kids on Halloween, all originating in the White House.

    But I digress in my effort to edify. Save one last comment. Take a long hard look at who Nuland is married to and her and her husbands history.

    This video being restored seems to be nothing more than youtube trying to created confusion, confusion it seems to thrive on. Could be they don’t have control of their systems. The old smoke and mirrors routine.

    Thanks CN

      ” to be nothing more than youtube trying to created confusion”

      “The old smoke and mirrors routine.”

      Some would suggest it is not as complex as that – a useful indicator of growing levels of contempt of others not requiring “immaculate conception”.

      The likely attempted sell could be – we listened to the power of the people and rectified our “mistake”, for which we unreservedly apologise.

      All communication is a marketing opportunity.

    Who said that American dreams can’t come true?

    This one was actually a “two-fer,” being a nightmare for Russia at the same time.

    You can see how they later projected onto Russia (in Russiagate) exactly what they had done and sabotaged an entire American presidential administration after terminally fucking Ukraine, the EU, Russia and the world. Now their handiwork has us on the brink of nuclear Armageddon. Thanks, Obama.

      The early days post-Maidan weren’t the nazi-nightmare that came later, so not that shocking to Russia.. UA President Yanukovitch chose a superior economic package offered by Russia to the shabby one by the EU.. He made the correct economic decision for UA, but was not the Moscow puppet that some characterized him as being; in fact, relations between he and Mr Putin were somewhat frosty.. The CIA coup was already in play by that time, and Yanukovitch proved to be too weak to crackdown as any world leader would have done..
